The link is from Channel 7 news in Denver and shows some pictures of CO 1404 during firefighting efforts. Most pictures were taken from the non-fire side of the aircraft, so it's hard to tell if there are also trucks on that side.

Those are some pretty dramatic photos. It makes it all the more amazing that everyone escaped, uninjured. Good work, highly trained professional CO crew.  bigthumbsup

Very interesting ... I've never seen pictures of deployed slides at night.

Are my eyes deceiving me, or are there marker lights on the edges of the slide, and lights at the base?

Or were those reflectors of some type?

Reflectors.. just look at the shots of the fire equipment. Those things do weird things in a camera's eye.



I don't care what you think of my opinion. It's my opinion, so have a nice day :)

Actually that reminds me.. does anyone have an update on the cause of this incident... this and the A320 (not the Hudson one) that went down recently, I haven't heard boo about either in forever.

Most escape slides have lights built in that are connected to the emergency lighting system in the aircraft. They stay on for as long as the emergency lighting system operates.

As I was looking at these pictures all I kept thinking was thank God for the great CO F/As on that flight!

From personal experience from F/A training and blowing an actual slide (for training) at Xtra Airways, the slides on the 737 them self have their own independant lighting system that should automatically activate when the slide is blown.
